TMP Committees

 

 

Texas Music Partners depends on our volunteer committees to help ensure our organizational health and effectiveness.  We currently have 3 committees.  Every committee is equally important to TMP’s success so the members of each committee should be aware of how important you are to the success of our mission.  Below is a diagram of the committee structure followed by the duties of each committee.  If you are interested and willing to contributing at least 10 hours per month to making a difference in the future of our kids and our community, please click on the link here to fill out an application to become a member of the committee of your choice.
